Good effort OP, especially considering the ever increasing and rediculous costs of newer handsets these days, heat

Good morning @Mrswitch - great effort - I've had to change the Get Deal Link as it was just going back to the site, I've popped music magpie as the main link (mainly because I bought my daughters phones from them recently - refurb phones are a great way to buy phones for younger kids) but feel free to change it to a store of your choosing heat added

Worth noting that some of the 'direct' retailers will also appear on Ebay. …Worth noting that some of the 'direct' retailers will also appear on Ebay. Eg Musicmagpie.Why's that interesting? Well, there might not be much price difference between sites right now (there again, worth checking) - but Ebay UK is about to run another 20% off discount methinks.


I agree, but i listed ebay in general terms, because of the sheer amount of refurbished retailers currently unsuitable for hukd.

There are some epic deals to be had on ebay if you pick right (obviously)
Thanks

Haha, It is so hard to find a good cheap iPhone refurb, I'm not opposed to them at all, but couldn't find one worthy of mentioning.
Very shrewd Mrswitch very very savvy.
Nice job OP. I usually buy a lot of second hand phones from Ebay and rarely ever buy new. Always a great way to snag a potential bargain
Couldn't come at a better time! Thanks so much
Good post mate!

Amazon seem to be a pretty good place for handsets.... Even when the description is Average and states large scratches to screen the phone is usually in great condition. It puts loads of people off I'm sure

I think they are often just describing the tatty box which I couldn't care less about!
There are some good deals on cashgenerator
Personally I would avoid Game! From my experience their used phones are not tested properly - but each to their own
